Porsche at the Techno Classica 2013
Porsche Classic had an exhibit at the world’s largest old-timer car show in Essen from April 10 to 14, 2013. The comprehensive range of Classic Genuine Parts and the full spectrum of services provided by the Porsche Classic workshop for the restoration, repair and maintenance of classic Porsche autos was in Hall 7.0. The main focus at the spacious exhibit stand celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911. The sports car icon from Zuffenhausen has thrilled car enthusiasts around the world for five decades.
Few other automobiles can claim such a continuity of excellence as the Porsche 911. The 911 is also the main point of reference for all other Porsche automobiles. Over 820,000 Porsche 911s have been developed, making it to one of the most successful sports car on the planet.
Porsche Classic showed four 911 designs to illustrate the broad range of the 911’s history. Two very early coupés offered visitors a thought into the modern technology of the first 911 models: one 911 (1964) presently being restored in the Porsche Classic workshop as well as a 911 (1965) straight from the Porsche Museum. The 911 Turbo Cabriolet idea was also on hand at Essen. This made its debut in September 1981 at the IAA in Frankfurt. Porsche Exclusive and Tequipment showed the modern 911 range with a present 911 (type 991) which has been particularly furnished to demonstrate the extensive array of personalization choices available on the current Porsche 911. On top of that, fans of the 911 precursor, the 356, weren’t let down at the Techno Classica, as Porsche Classic showed a rare totally recovered 356 B T5 GS Carrera GT design.
Normally, Porsche Classic professionals were there to recommend and assist visitors at the show. They supplied details on the considerable accessibility of Genuine Parts for Porsche Classic models as well as insider pointers on the maintenance and proper maintenance of these historical cars. A total of 35,000 Genuine Parts for Classic vehicles are offered through the Porsche Centers worldwide.
